Dana Library's celebration of 50 years as a Federal Depository Library will continue into the fall.

In 2017, the John Cotton Dana Library at Rutgers–Newark is celebrating 50 years as a Federal Depository Library with a number of programs drawing on its government documents collections and services.

These efforts, including the popular 50 Mini Sessions on Online Government Resources series, were recently showcased in a “Depository Library Spotlight” article on the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) website. From the article:

[The U.S. Government Publishing Office] appreciates and recognizes Dana Library and its staff’s commitment to not only providing access to Government information, but helping their patrons find, utilize, and understand the print and online resources available to them through the depository.

In the tradition of John Cotton Dana and of the FDLP, their dedication shows the importance the depository and library have had to the community and the university over the course of a full half century.

Congratulations to depository coordinator and documents/business librarian Wen-Hua Ren and to the entire faculty and staff of Dana Library for this recognition of their work!

To learn more, read the full article and bookmark the library’s “Celebrating 50 Years of Being a Federal Depository Library” webpage for details on the mini sessions, which will continue in the fall.
